Fire Curtains

- Smoke and fire curtains from Colt of Havant, United Kingdom, are now available in North America from The Bilco Company of New Haven, Connecticut. The curtains create a physical barrier that prevents the movement of smoke and heat in the event of a fire. They contain and channel the smoke and heat to a predetermined area, allowing occupants to escape a building through smoke-free areas and aiding fire-containment efforts. Property damage is minimized because smoke is restricted to the immediate area of the fire and unable to spread. Colt ventilation systems can remove smoke from the building by powered or natural means. Smoke curtains are available in fixed and automatic designs. Fixed curtains feature a fabric that is held and clamped by angle pieces. Automatic smoke curtains are equipped with an electric motor that unrolls the fabric automatically upon a signal from a fire detection system.
